Ishimori the Japanese company who produces Wood Stone instruments have collaborated with Yamaha to produce this remarkable YAS-82ZWS Custom saxophone.
The Wood Stone YAS-82ZWS Alto Saxophones are the result of years of technical expertise and know-how from the wonderful technicians at Ishimori and Yamaha, Japan.
You can find on the bell the logo of Wood Stone and Custom, the latter logo means the top model of the Yamaha saxophone range. It is engraved more precisely by skilled craftsmen than the normal 82Z and the lacquer is very thin so that this saxophone vibrates very well.
The bell of the Yamaha 82Z is made of two pieces but the YAS-82ZWS features a one-piece bell so that the sound becomes more highly resonant and dynamic.
The saxophone also comes with two necks, the E1WS neck is the improved version of the Yamaha E1 neck, this neck is much better than the original in high register, intonation has also improved whilst giving a soft but clear sound. The other neck is an original Wood Stone and the sound is very rich but controllable.
They have used two braces between the bell and body, this improves the vibration of the saxophone and gives a quick response and gives a more resonant sound.
The sax has been given Wood Stone's left hand thumb rest which is hard rubber and also helps with response and the right hand gets the Wood Stone metal thumb hook.
The Wood Stone solid silver neck joint screw makes your sound softer and richer and high notes can become more powerful.
The VL model has a rich gold vintage lacquer finish, this gives the sax a resonant and lively tone. The lacquer itself is thin and hard to bring the optimum resonance from the tube. The detailing of design and finishing of these Saxophones is second to none, let's have a look at some of the more unique features:
